A few small changes in punctuation that would yield massive changes

Total Gun Sales Control By “Minor” Textual Changes.

Here is the operative part of Senate Bill S. 4068 in it’s entirety:

Section 922(t)(1)(B) of title 18, United States Code, is amended—

(1) by striking “(i)”;

(2) by striking “; or” and inserting “; and”; and

(3) by striking clause (ii).

Doesn’t look like much, does it? Even clause (ii) itself is only one sentence long, so what’s the problem?

This is the part of the federal law that it would apply to:

(t)
(1)
Beginning on the date that is 30 days after the Attorney General notifies licensees under section 103(d) of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act that the national instant criminal background check system is established, a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer shall not transfer a firearm to any other person who is not licensed under this chapter, unless—
(A)
before the completion of the transfer, the licensee contacts the national instant criminal background check system established under section 103 of that Act;
(B)
(i)
the system provides the licensee with a unique identification number; or
(ii)
3 business days (meaning a day on which State offices are open) have elapsed since the licensee contacted the system, and the system has not notified the licensee that the receipt of a firearm by such other person would violate subsection (g) or (n) of this section; and

(C)
the transferor has verified the identity of the transferee by examining a valid identification document (as defined in section 1028(d) of this title) of the transferee containing a photograph of the transferee.

So all it does is say you always get a unique ID number, and your transfer goes through when your identity has been verified. IOW, you’re a good guy. Sounds like common sense, right?


Guess again.


The problem is, that this measure, brought out by anti-gun zealot Senator Richard Blumenthal, (D-CT) and proven stolen valor liar, would eliminate the all-American concept of assumption of innocence from the NICS background check that is universal when purchasing a firearm from a registered dealer ( or in states that have removed your right to freely trade with other citizens, and now “close the gun show loophole” by forcing such transactions to go through the NICS system ).

What it really means is that the 3 day processing window would cease to exist. The one that says “our wonderful super computer zillion dollar system can instantly tell if you’re a criminal or not, but let’s be super safe and give it 3 days to work just in case”. They would now have FOREVER to return a response. And seeing how obviously weaponized against free citizens huge parts of the federal government have become, you can pretty much assume that this is exactly what will happen.

Hell, in NJ it’s been the law for decades that the state has 30 days to process your firearms permit, yet they routinely take 6 - 8 months. And there’s not a damn thing you can about it.

And now, with the ‘rona and the riots, when gun sales are through the roof, and the NICS system is up 75%, more than 2.5 million new gun owners, shelves empty in every gun shop in the country, police departments defunded or stood down, people living in fear for their lives and livelihoods, NOW this asshat liar pulls this kind of stunt, introducing such a bill June 25?


Under current law, if NICS cannot be completed in three business days, a federally licensed dealer can still transfer a firearm. While the setup of NICS is not ideal, the current setup has several points that make it much fairer than various licensing and waiting period schemes:

It presumes that someone seeking to buy a firearm is law-abiding.
It places the burden to deny a firearms transaction on the government.
It also does not subject someone trying to exercise their rights into an indefinite wait.

Blumenthal’s bill changes that. It removes the three business day limit on a delay. In other words, if there is a delay for whatever reason (NICS is down, confusion), a law-abiding citizen is denied the right to purchase a firearm until the delay gets resolved, and without the time limit, that can be potential for some serious, life-threatening abuse.

Imagine what IRS workers under Lois Lerner did to the Tea Party’s applications for tax-exempt status being applied to firearm purchases run through NICS.
...
But in Blumenthal’s mind, that’s all okay. Because to him, gun ownership isn’t a right – it’s a privilege that should be determined by the government.

Contact your reps ASAP. This one has to go down in flames.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
